The Extreme Weather Shelter operated by Gateway Church in Abbotsford, B.C., has offered over 160 individuals a dry place to rest this winter. So, is it making a difference? This is part 3 of this series!
When Gateway CRC decided to host an Extreme Weather Shelter in their building, staff and volunteers knew there would be a lot to learn. Here are some learnings they wanted to share!
We hope this story inspires churches to trust God and follow Him into their communities, despite the risks and the unknowns.
How do I balance the busyness of being a youth pastor's wife, becoming a mother, and doing what I'm passionate about? I am slowly learning, and the following are three things I've figured out. I would love to hear further thoughts and suggestions if you have any.

So I'm on my own again. Me and the three kids. My husband, a youth pastor, is away for two nights for his job ... I'm going to share with you a few of the ones that help me through these times, and if you have some good ones to share, please post them and we can all help each other out!
At the end of a beautiful farewell evening at our church for my husband, who was the Youth Pastor, a woman came up to me and said "You worked just as hard as he did all these years, because you were the one who had to give him up every night and take care of your family on your own!" Her comment blessed me so much!
